Free entry to national parks for Nature Play passport holders over the July school holidays

To celebrate the State Government’s Parks for People initiative, free entry to national parks will be offered for all kids who hold Nature Play passports over the July school holidays – Saturday 5 to Sunday 20 July.

If you’re a parent stuck for ideas of where to take your kids over the coming school holidays, why not take advantage of this great offer.

The Department of Parks and Wildlife has some great ideas for day trips in and around Perth over school holidays – click here for further information.

Fees for vehicle entry will be waived for one vehicle per passport where at least one vehicle passenger shows a Nature Play passport at national parks where fees normally apply. See below for a list of the 30 parks where vehicle entry fees apply.

Camping fees still apply. The offer also excludes commercial operators and Parks and Wildlife attractions (e.g. the Tree Top Walk and Monkey Mia).

The Nature Play WA ‘Passport to an Amazing Childhood’ program is a great resource for parents to get kids outdoors, and includes more than 120 missions, great prizes and more. Click here for further information and to apply for a Nature Play passport.

The aim of the $21 million Parks for People initiative is to develop more affordable and high-quality camping and caravan accommodation, and improve park facilities and services in WA’s national parks and reserves.

The Parks for People initiative is being implemented by Parks and Wildlife and is funded under Royalties for Regions.
